Why shop small business?

Photojournalism Hub presents Why shop small business? – the latest edition of documentary photography and writings from our local young and senior participants of our documentary photography courses.
Why shop small business? brought a lot of conversations and critical analysis on what it really means. Are we shopping more ethically because more conscious of what we eat? Are we more aware of the authenticity and the personal experiences that one has in small independent outlerier. Or the choices of shopping small points to having the economic capacity to do so and thus a statement of wealth. One pervading reflection is that shopping small is very much tied to serving communities. We could say that we have many communities around each local shop, something that we cannot find in much bigger commercial chain.

We have printed a number of copies of the magazine for our beneficiaries and for sharing and making it available in our community. If you would like a copy or discuss a feature, please contact us.

What is like to be a young person today?

What is it like to be a young person? is a photography exhibition part of a Youth Arts Showcase presenting photography by youths living in White City and Wormholt, London.

Photojournalism Hub has worked with young people living in White City and Wormholt in west London to help them to tell their story through photography of what it is like to grow up today in west London.

The poignant and inspiring photography produced reflect the state of being of young people following the experiences of upheaval, loss, and insecurity poised by Covid-19 pandemic and the extended lockdowns to contain the spread of the virus. Finding metaphors in water, leaves and reflective materials in nature, the young photographers have taken to landscape photography, to their peers, and to the documentation of their friends’ lives as a means of presenting their own lives.

We share the digital version of the booklet that accompanied the photography exhibition.

The project was supported by the charity W12Together
